He alleged that Moyo was behind the recent document by Zanu PF, which has thrown the drafting of the charter into disarray. “The document has demands which are impossible to meet. The demands have no relationship to what the people want or said during the outreach programmes,” said Mwonzora. “Moyo and Zanu PF are not serious about elections, but they only want to destroy the constitution-making process, so that the current uneven political playing field remains.”
But Mwonzora’s Zanu PF counterpart in Copac, Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana, although admitting that the party had raised over 300 new issues it wants incorporated into the new constitution, described Mwonzora’s allegations as “nonsensical”.
“Give credit where it is due,” he said, suggesting that he was behind Zanu PF’s fresh demands. “I am the leader of Zanu PF in the constitution-making process and not Moyo.”
Mangwana said Moyo’s role in Zanu PF was strategic. “Moyo is given assignments as the party feels. We are a party of guerrillas and do not openly discuss our strategies, unlike the MDC which was formed by whites,” he said.
